FU Money: A Realistic FIRE Movement Alternative

Update: 2022-09-26


Are you a fan of the FIRE Movement, but find it to be unrealistic for your lifestyle?

Well, FU Money might be more your flavor. 

In this episode, we review what FU Money is and how it can help you leave that job you don't like and transition into a life you enjoy.

Also, we chat with AJ Thompson from Tennessee about how he and his wife Tabitha invested over $400k in their early 30s -- now they have achieved Coast FIRE!

Last but not least, my son Calvin joins me for another "Good Word". We're discussing college costs and the "7/11 baby" whose chances at college just got a lot easier.
